System-agnostic sourcebooks for any historical or fantasy game.

In presenting the Pirate Reference series, my goal is to get people to look beyond official gaming material for inspiration. There is a wealth of ideas to be found in history, biographies, and older fiction from before the tabletop roleplaying game era that is waiting to be tapped. My hope is that this book with fire up your imagination, and help you to discover new possibilities. It’s listed on the credits page of every book we publish.

This special bundle product contains the following titles.

The Pirates' Who's Who Volume 1

 PDF
Buy the Bundle, get all 4 volumes for 50% off! An encyclopedic reference to historical pirates in 4 volumes. This version of The Pirates’ Who’s Who, presented in 4 volumes, was edited with the creative tabletop roleplayer in mind. It provides an overview of the topic of piracy, and discussed the way its history has been documented. There’s a lot of information, but not so much that it overwhelms, or leaves no space to unleash your own creativity. This book is a great source of character names. That some people get only a line or two, while others get detailed biographies that go on for pages, has been inspirational and validating. My own notebooks are filled with non-player characters similarly documented. I’ve always given myself guilt for not fleshing all of them out equally....

Pirates occurred in many places across time. I'd be interested in knowing what proportion of the references were to white pirates in the Caribbean and Mediterranean vs. pirates in the South China Sea, North Africans along the Barbary Coast, or those in the Indian Ocean. Couldn't tell from the descriptions.

One of the reasons I love these books is because there are entries for Spanish, African, Indian, and Chinese pirates. It's not 100% white guys in the Carribean.

Product Information
Publisher Stock #
A5-960P1
Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
